Military Braided Products
Gladding is an approved vendor of the United States Department of Defense, passing all of the government's quality control, first-article inspection requirements. Gladding earned its reputation for quality cordage among Yankee clipper ship sailors who insisted on the most dependable and durable cordage as they sailed to all parts of the world. During World War II, the U.S. and Allied governments called upon Gladding's expertise for the manufacture of parachute cords, tow lines, bomb lanyards, shroud lines, survival kit items, and cordage for many other special needs. Our certified and calibrated laboratory's policy is one of continuous product improvement and development. Constant monitoring and testing of incoming raw materials, in-process manufacturing inspections, and final product specification testing assure that all components meet and often surpass government standards. Our work with the military continually serves to reemphasize, for all our workers, the significance of quality. We believe that the stringent standards required by the government serve to uphold a high level of quality throughout our manufacturing process.
